About This Class


Kirstie Allsopp described machine embroidery as the 'crack cocaine of the crafting world', with this class, you can discover why free motion stitching is so addictive!

This is a follow on class from basic free motion embroidery.    Now that you have learned to draw with your sewing machine, we will be adding in appliqué, with all the tips and tricks you need to know to ensure success.  

Any basic sewing machine will work, machine setup is covered in class one.  Normal sewing rules are out the window, so no sewing experience is required. 

In the video lessons, I will cover the tools and supplies you will find useful for adding applique and discuss different methods of adding applique, the pros and cons of each.  We will also discuss design transfer options.

Fabric Addict

I am South African born and bred, was Berlin based for over six years, was in the UK just over three - Winchester & the Midlands, and have recently moved (with our now VERY well-traveled cats) to California!

I love to design and create a rather diverse range of things. Basically, if I am left alone with fabric ... there is no telling what the result may be.

I have taught sewing classes on three continents so far, everything from bespoke lingerie to textile art.
